Black Sun was the most powerful and infamous crime syndicate of its time in the Multiverse. Black Sun held a massive amount of reach and influence, extending its tendrils of corruption deep in the various galactic governments of each era. It was infamous for its involvement in piracy and smuggling. But smuggling was just the tip of the iceberg of the galaxy-wide organization. It was involved in every known type of illegal activity; its information networks surpassed even the accuracy and scope of Imperial Intelligence. The resources available to Black Sun rivaled those belonging to a large planetary army, including foot soldiers. The Black Sun is once a Independent Faction in the early years of the first war until they joined the Coalition of Independent States and there successor Hegemony of Independent States.
